Like clockwork, indiscriminate amounts of money ranging from a few bucks to $1,000, were sent out to those who participated.
But $100,000 is small change compared to the numbers the album has racked up. According to Complex, Astroworld has topped the Billboard 200 chart and has earned 537,000 equivalent album units since its early August release.
Astroworld is also climbing the charts along with Nicki Minaj's Queen. Both albums are competing for the coveted number one spot on Billboard's 200.
Scott's second studio release, Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight, brought in 88,000 units, according to Business Insider.
The marketing around Astroworld has been a beautiful thing to witness. https://t.co/raW3FxoJKZ— Rachel H. (@MiissHislop) August 14, 2018
